I recently ran into an ex-BIC at a Business Expo networking event and he just assumed I was no longer in the real estate business because he wasn’t. Everyone else he knew has quit and went back to work “a real job.” He even talked about the person he sold his business to is out of business as w...
I went to check on one of my listings and the sign was missing. It's happened again. Another sign missing from one of my listings. I called the last agent who's last offer on the property had fallen through. It was a shortsale, however, their offer wasn't acceptable to the bank. BPO came back to...
How many new home buyers are still looking for their 'Dream Home". To some, it may seem like a fairlytale, but it's not. It just takes a little more money and a little more effort. We have to work harder to find those first time home buyers with perfect credit, (it would be great if they found...

Wow, it's tax time again. Hopefully a lot of people will get off the fence and close before they file their taxes. However, amending is still possible. But since I also do taxes, I'm hoping for an increase in both areas. The problem is that homebuyers can't efile if they want the $8,000 tax cr...
Well, looks like we got an extension on the $8,000 tax credit until the end of the year. The only thing wie have to do now is to get more people qualified to take it. Now something has to be done for people who don't qualify for it. Banks are no longer lending money to anyone who does not have...
It is my opinion that the housing crash blame is pointed at the wrong group. Sure predatory lending played a part, but a small part. Many of the houses went into foreclosure because of jobloss. High interest rates was a small number compared to the thousands of joblosses that were accurring ea...
